It tried opening TOR using the shortcut Alt+Sft+N. But it’s not opening. Also, there is no option in the menu to open such tab

How can this issue be reproduced?

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave): V1.24.86

Mobile Device details Dell Inspiron 5000 (i3 6th gen, 8GB RAM)

Additional Information:

Hey @ombsahu11 ! Welcome to the community :smiley:

To open Tor on Brave :

  1. Click on the Menu Icon in the top right corner
  2. Click on New Private Window with Tor

Hope this helped!


Hi @ombsahu11, Welcome to Community!
This might be relevant here:

There are no such settings in menu (refer screenshot) and short cut is not working

I haven’t installed that update yet.
We can exclude only files/folders and not an app. Still, I excluded brave browser folder in the program folder. But in task manager, there is no process related to tor

But it certainly seems that OS is blocking it @Aa-ron

Hey @ombsahu11 !

Can you try creating a new profile to see if you see the option to open a Tor window?

Click on Menu Icon → Create a New Profile


Its not working @GreenBananaPorridge

Have you tried the solution found in this post that @Aa-ron linked to?

This seems like your best bet.


Where did you download Brave from?
Are you using a personal machine or a work machine?

It my personal machine @Aa-ron

Can you confirm - where did you download Brave from?

@Aa-ron From brave’s website. Everything like Sync etc is working fine but this is the only problem

@ombsahu11 ! Can you please state which region you are in? I believe there is a version of Brave that does not support Tor based on the location of the user.
